Those with waist sizes in the healthy range get “ free” healthcare. The rest pay unsubsidized premiums based on the dif between healthy and actual waist size. Apply this across the board, including Medicaid and Medicare.

Give people 2 years notice.

Provide a financial incentive for people to choose healthier lifestyles.

Here's an example.
Raleigh NC Cheesecake Factory: https://www.thecheesecakefactory.com...leigh_0219.pdf

Seattle WA Cheesecake Factory:

One of the places I've been to in Olympia:
LUNCH & DINNER

Gotta love spending 17.50 for a burger and a salad with a nasty ranch dressing.
Seattle area is very expensive. That's why $15/hr makes sense.

40 more restaurants opened after they raised min. wage. Over 100,000 new workers were hired. Some had hrs cut, some didn't. They put that money back into the local economy, helping the economy of the area. (not into an investment account, like wealthy people do)

None of the others are leaving an impression...
I don't get the sense that any besides Buttigieg really understand what this is about. They are trying to debate policies and why theirs (the dem view) is better...but none have actually come out and said "elect me as your president and this is why".

Virtually all of what they are all talking about requires Congress to write AND pass bills with both side's support, and THEN the president can sign them.

There is absolutely zero chance of repealing all private healthcare here. Done deal. It would be political suicide to suggest it.

Warren keeps railing about the $23b in health insurance profits this year...what she doesn't understand is health insurance companies do a remarkable job keeping a lid on costs in an industry where $3.5 TRILLION is spent annually. And they do it way more efficiently than the government would be able to do it.

Interesting. Maybe you should run for office. Or shoot off some emails to these candidates.

But truth be told, what good is SPONSORING a bill IF IT DOES NOT GET PASSED?
I applied for over 100 7 figure jobs!!!
